The film industry in Oklahoma is growing and changing. With the passage of film incentives in 2005 and 2006, a renewed interest from state lawmakers and elected officials in the film and television industries, as well as an expanded film office staff,Oklahoma is an excellent location for your next production. The Oklahoma Film & Music Office is working daily to ensure that when productions film in the state, all of their needs are met and expectations are surpassed.
The financial benefits to filming in Oklahoma are not the only reasons to look toOklahoma for your next production. Oklahomaâ€™s locations, both natural and man-made are as rich and varied as any you are likely to find. Oklahoma boasts more eco-regions per square mile than any state in the union. Oklahoma can double for almost any location your script requires. The nations largest stretch of nostalgic Route 66 traverses our state, presenting a selection of Americana that is second-to-none. Tulsa offers a treasure trove of Art Deco architecture, while Guthrie has maintained one of Americaâ€™s largest sections of contiguous Victorian architecture, making it a prime location for period films.
Please contact us so that we can provide you with further information about our incentives, our locations, talented crew members, and supportive state and city leaders.
